I’ve been going after Drudge a lot here recently. While Drudge may not get quite the same play as Fox does, he, in no small part, is very responsible for Republican agenda. Something that appears on the Drudge Report will, the next day, dominate cable news and a lot of other mainstream outlets. In his […]


We’re Boned

As my apartment search is over, I hope to get back more into blogging. However, I don’t know how I’m going to stay sane if I do this I do this too frequently. Here’s why, via Time: Yet the survey also revealed that many Americans harbor lingering animosity toward Muslims. Twenty-eight percent of voters do […]


It’s been a common theme of conservative rhetoric recently to attack President Obama for his use of tax payer money…and not the kind of money that’s voted on by Congress. Dig Drudge: Boy, that seems odd. You’d think Matt Drudge might have a point or something. Until you realize that the meeting he was attending […]


This is literally the reference I was looking for last night. From Jonathan Alter, via Mike Allen: Obama said that the unanimous House vote against the Recovery Act ‘set the tenor for the whole year’: ‘That helped to create the tea-baggers and empowered that whole wing of the Republican Party to where it now controls the […]


An anti-dickridin’ Obama post. In case you missed the White House Correspondents’ Dinner (an already deplorable exercise in a time of economic and ecology disaster), Obama had to go there: “Jonas Brothers are here, they’re out there somewhere. Sasha and Malia are huge fans, but boys, don’t get any ideas. Two words for you: predator […]


I keep getting criticism on this post I had almost two years back now on the Kanye West song “Heard ‘Em Say.” Most of this criticism revolves around the idea that I seriously think Adam Levine hates white people–a group in which he’s included–and that he believes a that the government actually distributed the AIDS […]


Mitt Romney produces a howler: “If ever again somewhere down the road I would be debating [Obama], I would be happy to take credit for his [healthcare] accomplishment,” – Mitt Romney. To my knowledge, Romney and Obama have never debated in the first place, but the two often took shots at each other in their respective […]


In light of the last post, this needs to be said. Barack Obama apparently has a fucked up view of executive power. From Greenwald: When Obama was seeking the Democratic nomination, the Constitutional Law Scholar answered a questionnaire about executive power distributed by The Boston Globe‘s Charlie Savage, and this was one of his answers: 5. Does the Constitution […]


I remember I was in kindergarten. It was 1992, and I was vaguely aware of the world around me. I had been for a while; in pre-school I remember my parents talking about Sadd-am Husein (pronounced exactly that way). We were at war, and being but a small child, this deeply concerned me. I heard […]


Via NRO, Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Ten) goes after the attachment to the health care bill: “Up to now, 15 out of 19 million student loans were private loans, backed by the government,” Alexander says. “Now we’re going to borrow half-a-trillion from China to pay for billions in new loans. Not only will this add to […]
